Milwaukee Symphony - De Waart Conducts Mahler

Come From Away

The true story of the small town that welcomed the world. Broadway’s COME FROM AWAY has won Best Musical all across North America! The New York Times Critics’ Pick takes you into the heart of the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded passengers and the small town in Newfoundland that welcomed them. Cultures clashed and nerves ran night, but uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night, and gratitude grew into enduring friendships. Don’t miss this breathtaking new musical written by Tony® nominees Irene Sankoff and David Hein, and helmed by this year’s Tony-winning Best Director, Christopher Ashley. Newsweek cheers, “It takes you to a place you never want to leave!” ON 9/11, the world stopped. On 9/12, their stories moved us all.

Milwaukee Symphony - Kahane Plays & Conducts

It languished unperformed for over 40 years. Never finished, and heard only in Schubert’s fevered imagination. Jeffrey Kahane leads Schubert’s immortal “Unfinished” Symphony. Plus music of Mozart: the magnificent Clarinet Concerto with the MSO’s Todd Levy. And conducting from the keyboard, Jeffrey Kahane plays the Piano Concerto No. 14.
